More little gripes..

I hope the forum (this part) will be expanded rather than showing the last 5 messages or so..

I notice the bottom descriptions for the older movies have dissappeared as well. These were great, as they told of histories of these movies, provided key words, offered a review from Mr. Mental Hygiene himself, Ken Smith, and of course, ended with the cryptic key words, danger lurks.

Can you give an example (by URL) of an older movie that formerly had the more detailed description? Rather disappointingly, I'm not sure they're in the XML right now. I'm sure we can restore, though.

Well (changing back into my more familiar garb) I think they ARE there lurking somewhere, if I search by 'ken smith'

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=ken%20smith%20AND%20mediatype%3Amovies%20AND%20collection%3Aprelinger

It's showing 283 movies, but when I go to a movie such as 'Preventing The Spread Of Disease' http://www.archive.org/details/Preventi1940 his review has dissapeared.

Same goes with Danger lurks..

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=lurks%20AND%20mediatype%3Amovies%20AND%20collection%3Aprelinger

If I look up 'lurks' in the movie 'Earthquake' http://www.archive.org/details/Earthqua1973
it doesn't show it there.

Make sense? :)

I noticed it!!

I just want to stop and say thanks to you Simon and your 24 hours a day Webmistress Tracey for all the hard work you've done this past couple weeks. It seems like trying times for both of you and I just want to say that all of it looks wonderful, the moving picture archive is, step by step, looking more awesome by the day.
